    That's what I did, waited til 10 weeks! It's a fun way to help the time go by! Can't believe I'm down to 7 already! :eek:

    Isn't that a beautiful picture of ToT? I don't know where it's from, I found it on google images, but I love it! I might make it my background on my computer!:lovestruc

    :laughing: Your top 10 seemed more like a top 12 to me.:goodvibes It's so hard to narrow down favorites. I haven't gotten to ride RnRC since 2000, feel like I really need to work that in. Guess I will have to ride it alone, since DH and I would have to switch off with the kids. I am sure Chloe will want to ride ToT atleast once, that one is her most favorite ride ever too.

    Can't wait to see your next list. All your lists are GREAT!!!

    Thanks! You should definitely do a list, I love seeing what everyone else loves about WDW! :goodvibes

    LOL, I know, but there was no way I could leave TTA or Winnie the Pooh off the list, so they were tied, and then the 2 roller coasters had to be tied as well, I don't think I could decide which one of them I like better! :rotfl: ToT is the best ride ever! :lovestruc

    Thanks, I can't wait to do the rest of my lists! There is one that is kind of eh, boring, that I might not do, but the rest of them I'm looking forward to! :banana:

    Great countdown idea! I'll probably be using that for one of mine too! :goodvibes

    Congrats on 2 pounds! Isn't amazing how the weeks you don't try you lose and the weeks you try so hard nothing happens?! :laughing: Either way though, that's a great accomplishment! :cheer2:

    Yay, can't wait to see it! :cool1:

    Thanks! It's definitely a fun countdown to do, to sit there and really try to narrow your favorite attractions in Disney down to 10! :)

    And thanks, about the 2 pounds! I honestly don't know how that happened, but I'm not going to complain! :rotfl: I gotta get off the computer and go do my elliptical now, it's so cold and rainy and miserable out...I'd really like to just crawl into bed, but if I don't start exercising now, Disney will be here before I know it! :)

    Those sunglasses are seriously the only thing both me and my sister remember from that trip! And I remember the hotel we stayed at, and riding Dumbo for like, 2 seconds! :rotfl:

    Going to your PTR right now!

    OMG we use to vacation in Vermont and New Hampshire, ALL THE TIME! It was like, the only places my parents knew about or something! I can't even count how many times we went to Santa's Land, Santa's Village, Storybook Land, and Water Country! One year, we did branch out a bit and went to Virginia instead!

    OMG the first one is my favorite! Although that 2nd one is SO cute! It's crazy how things are so important us as kids and as we get older we're like "wow...really?! I was mad in WDW for THAT?!" :rotfl2: too cute! I didn't even know about this promotion! I'm gonna go upload some pics now! :thumbsup2

    Congrats on those 2lbs! We are playing "Biggest Loser" at my job and our weigh in is tomorrow. :crazy2: Last week, I was the only one to actually lose weight (a whole pound! :rotfl2: )...everyone else either gained or stayed the same. I've been counting my WW points like a good little dieter but I'm afraid to get on that scale tomorrow!

    LOL, I know what you mean, we went to Vermont SO many times when I was a kid! We also branched out and went to Virginia a few times too to go to Busch Gardens, that was always fun! I rode my first upside down roller coaster there! :thumbsup2

    I can't believe I was so mad about those ridiculous sunglasses! I think it was because I brought a pair from home and she got to get a new pair in WDW so I was annoyed about it! :rotfl:

    I wish we could do something like that at my job, but no one I work with is motivated enough! Congrats on your one pound, it's a start! :banana: I am going to start tracking points tomorrow, I actually did 20 minutes on my elliptical today. I'm going to try to add 1-2 minutes each day and work myself back up to 40 minutes, which I could do last year! Good luck with your weigh in! :goodvibes

    Things purchased in WDW are always cooler than the things you buy at home! Even if it's twice as much money and the exact same quality!

    The people at my job annoy me! I was talking about needing motivation so they decided to start this Biggest Loser challenge. But that same week we had a party for our manager and they brought in lasagna, donuts, cake, and cookies! I was like "you guys are NOT helping my situation!"

    They talk all this trash to each other (jokingly, of course) about how this one is gonna win by 1lb and this and that....but they eat candy and cookies off of the snack cart all day long and eat Wendy's and Burger King for lunch. :confused3 I'm the only one legitimately trying! Even if I only lost another pound it's better than gaining!

    Congrats on getting your memories chosen! How exciting! Also, I'm loving your countdowns! If you dont mind, I might use the idea to do something similar in my PTR..?:flower3:

    Ughhh the people at my job annoy me too, there is always a reason we need to have a cake around, or order lunch or something, and I have no will power, I can't resist! Today at work, I had a piece of stuffed bread, ONE buffalo chicken tender, and a huge piece of cake that I said I didn't want, but was given anyway! :mad: All because one of my coworkers got married a few weeks ago! So my tracking points for the day is down the drain! And it's so hot and disgusting out today, I could only manage 20 minutes on the elliptical! It needs to be cool out so I can do it for longer, or at least not rain so I can go for a walk!

    How was the weigh in today? :goodvibes

    Thanks! Have you submitted any memories yet, I bet you have some great pictures that they would choose! :banana:

    Yay I hope they pick your memory! Make sure to put a link in your PTR or TR if they do! :)

    Thanks! No, go right ahead and use my countdowns, I don't mind at all! :flower3: I can't wait to read some of them!

    Thank you, I love the bunny picture too, one of my favorites! :banana:

    I stayed the same! Better than gaining I guess! One girl gained a couple pounds and refused to talk to anyone all day because she was upset. But she is the same one who makes excuses about needing M & M's off the cart because she's "having a bad day." So I don't want to hear it! :laughing:

    I did really good today until we got to dinner... we stopped at McDonalds where I got a McDouble, small fries, an apple pie, and then I had ice cream when I got home! I still had 14 points left over for dinner so even though I know I went over, it wasn't by too much I don't think! (my ice cream is Turkey Hill Fat Free/No Sugar Added!)

    I really have no will power, either! If it's dessert and you put it in front of me, I will eat it! I have to work really hard to just say no!

    It was nasty out today, wasn't it? We came home and turned the AC on in the house because it was disgusting in here. I can't believe it was like 50 degrees yesterday and today it was like 80. :sad2:

    It's definitely better than gaining!

    LOL I do the same thing when I'm having a bad day...always go for the chocolate! :rotfl: I really have to stop that!

    I did horrible today at work but I've been doing ok since I've been home. I don't think you went too much over 14 points with what you ate! I've never tried that ice cream, fat free/sugar free ice cream just upsets me! :laughing:

    I did say no to dessert today! But they gave it to me anyway, and I figured I'd try it and it was SO good...I ended up eating most of it! :mad: So mad at myself!

    This hot weather needs to stop, it needs to just be fall already!
